Bread for the Journey

 There are times when I wonder what the point is of taking so many pictures.
Only a small percentage are worthy of being shared through blogging or on other places of social media.

So what is the point?

As I scroll through the different seasons of my photos I am reminded of what has been, and how God was with me.

Each picture is a moment captured in a different season of my life and even though I rarely take pictures of the things that represent difficult times, I sometimes am reminded of what it was that moved me to take a picture. 

Whatever the season of life, I know that my sovereign God in his infinite love and mercy is with me.  When the storms in life will come, I will look back on God's faithfulness and it will help me to trust him and rest upon his word.  

'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

1. 'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, 
Just to take him at His Word
Just to rest upon His promise,
Just to say, "thus saith the Lord"

Jesus, Jesus how I trust Him!
How I've proved Him o'er and o'er.
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
Oh for grace to trust him more.

2. O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
Just in simple faith to plunge me
'Neath the healing cleansing flood!

3. Yes, 'tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.

4. I'm so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Saviour, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.

  1. These photos are beautiful and remind me of the "seasons" of our lives.

  2. Beautifully written and captured, Lovella! 'Tis to sweet to trust in Jesus ..." May I do so more!

  3. What a beautiful presentation and sentiment. Makes my Sunday ....
    Many thanks.

  4. Thank you for this post... Yes, I can look back through pictures and some of my journals and see He has been so faithful to me! To everything there is a season!

  5. ...not crazy about roasted beets, but I LOVE your photos! I take MANY photos on our many drives through the VA countryside as well as on larger, longer trips by car, plane, train - trains being my favorite way to GO! I identify with your sentence: "Each picture is a moment captured..." YES - exactly! It's a very special moment you don't want to forget, and reviewing it over and over again, you relive a moment that still brings you memories of joy and beauty that you - no human - can replicate. Thanks for those lovely photos and your words!
